BUTTERFLYFISH, ST HELENA / "CUNNINGFISH"

Chaetodon sanctaehelenae

A pretty little fish, pale silvery blue with golden edges. They are usually seen in twos or threes, but sometimes in shoals of 20-25. When breeding, some fish turn from silvery turquoise to slate grey. Other fish do not seem too impressed with their attention when they "clean" them!
